What is this file, and what extension should it have? How do you expect to open it?

When you expand a compressed file the result is whatever was compressed. Perhaps it was a .scr file?

Are you sure the file is from a trustworthy source? SCR files are script files, often used for screen savers. This means they are a program, which also means they could be a virus.

Be careful.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

What I think you are seeing is that when extracting, some extraction software displays the files that are inside the container file (in this case a RAR file), but the problem is : the window in which these files are displayed is NOT Windows Explorer.

So, if you click there, it depends on the extraction software itself, what happens. The Windows file association function may not kick in, and thus something will state : no clue what to do here.

If that is your problem, either:
- actually extract the file, not just look at the preview of the container file (in this case a file RAR)
- use another extraction tool - When I think of RAR, I think of WinRAR but maybe that is exactly what you are using already. There's a good chance that WinZip or 7Zip or whatever can also read & extract .RAR files
